As the second half of the year has arrived I am in stock taking mood. In no particular order here are three of the things I know a bit more about now, than I did six months ago:
– Some providers of goods and services are good at creating an accessible, welcoming feeling for customers new to their brand (yes WordPress, I’m talking about you)
– Effective project management techniques can produce good quality, timely results for the non-profit sector, just as they do in the commercial world – www.hoestreetfirst.wordpress.com shows that is the case.
– It is a challenge to mobilise volunteers for community projects at the best of times. During a period of austerity it is harder. Understandably they are focusing on finding / keeping a job; financial security; family time. Hats off to the folks who do get involved and whose contributions do make a difference.
